Here, There And Everywhere

To get the timeless music of the Beatles onto vinyl and put together the greatest pop music albums ever recorded. Recording engineer Geoff Emerick made full use of his soundboard skills and his ingenuity, work with the Fab Four and their producer George Martin to create records unlike anything the world had heard up to that point. Here, There and Everywhere : My Life Recording the Music of the Beatles (Gotham Books; $26.00; March 2006) is four-time Grammy winner and recording industry legend Emericks story of the years he spend at EMI studios at Abbey Road, working with the band to shape albums such as Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band and Revolver (recently named the #1 and #3 greatest albums of all time by Rolling Stone). Emerick started at EMI as a fifteen-year-old assistant engineer just in time to witness the first studio recording by the Beatles -- and by the time he was nineteen he was their main recording engineer for the groundbreaking Revolver, turning the sounds the heard in their heads into the music that would change the world.
